It is boring.
Like "watching paint dry" boring. NO, worse than that, because it you were just merely watching paint dry, you might let you mind wander and start thinking of pretty things.
This just makes your brain dwell on how abysmal human beings are sometimes.
99% of the people in this so-called "film" never did much of anything else in movies, thankfully. If they did appear in other stuff it was mostly "uncredited" roles.

Wow! This makes "Plan 9 from Outer Space", also with hulking thespian Tor Johnson, look like "Citizen Kane." Beyond belief. What I can't figure is how they got away with the opening nude scene in 1961. Unheard of, even for a drive-in flick. This is a perfect example of how not to make a movie.

Dear uploader of this cult classic,

Writing to you with request for help in our Rooftop Cinema project.

We plan to screen this cult flick under Z-Movies Retrospective in July 2010 in the summer outdoor cinema in Tallinn, Estonia.

As we have w20m x h13m outdoor cinema screen and 15000 ANSI digital Christies projector we would need maximum quality from the screened film´s digital file. The current avi file most likely remains little lo-fi for our resolution capacity.

We would like to request from the uploader of this movie to Internet Archive if it would be possible to provide us with UNCOMPRESSED AVI or QUICKTIME FILE as high quality video as possible?

If you would be able to share the file, please contact me directly: aivar [at] or skype aivarlaan

Looking for any feedback as soon as possible,

Thank you very much in advance,
best rgds,

Aivar Laan

The producers of this insult weren’t enthusiastic novices who tried to make the best movie they could on a limited budget. They were talent-less guys who tried to cash in on the drive-in market by slapping together an hour of film at the lowest possible cost. The inane narration was written by some pompous ass with an ignoramus's view of the world. The film itself is a barely coherent mess. The end result is mind-numbing tedium. I hope Tor Johnson got paid.

As a lover of B-movies in general and so-bad-they're-good flicks in particular. believe me when I say this one isn't worth your time. There are many, many great films here at the Archive that are.
